“It’s a beautiful, beautiful scene; it’s a soul, soul heaven”

Fonzerelli is turning into one of my favorite artists. His track Spirit from KTFv14 is something I can listen to over and over again, along with his remix of Soul Heaven presented here. I know it’s GAYGAYGAY but I can’t help being moved by it – and I hate divas. The big surprise is Ferry Corsten’s mix of Bring The Noise, which kicks ass. I lived with a copy of Public Enemy’s Fear Of A Black Planet all during my freshman year of college, and I can still rap almost the entire track from memory. As soon as I heard the remix I started hearing Daft Punk’s Burnin’ paired with it. Dirty South has been remixing everyone and I love their bootleg mix of Confusion, one of New Order’s most reworked tracks (’83, ’90, ’95, ’02, and now ’07). Finally, NSA and RuPaul will have you laughing with Computer Love, the title of which is a nod to Kraftwerk and with lyrics taken from dirty personal ads on Craigslist (NSFW).

Unfortunately my copy of this file has gotten corrupted so I’m not able to share it, but I wanted to preserve the track listing here. Lee is digging around to see if he can find the original so I can repost it.

“Believe me, doll – we’re all through. There’s no money in the underground.”

Readers Wifes are Chelsea Kelsey and Kim Phaggs, the DJs from infamous London club Duckie. I went to Duckie during a trip to London and had one of my best nights out, ever. The narration on Nostalgia is done by Justin Bond, a.k.a. Kiki of New York drag cabaret act Kiki & Herb.

I got Bossy from Mark in Portland.

The lead vocal on Strange Sounds is an incognito Jake Shears from Scissor Sisters, singing with a pinched nose.
